I would suggest getting some snap caps. They make them in just about every caliber and they are perfect for practicing trigger pull and gun operation.
Yea I need to invest in some snap caps, I just like to function test my guns after I strip and clean them before taking them out to shoot.

It is perfectly safe to dry-fire a striker fired pistol, as long as you have the empty mag. in it. Ruger will tell you this and actually does in your manual.

I have the SR9c and i agree. It does say it right in the manual.. It is ok to dry fire as long as an empty clip is in it.

I got my SR-40 about a month ago. I got it new for just over $500. So used at $300 looking the way it did. I'd say you got a good deal.

Mine shoots great! I love the trigger and It fits in my hands like it was made just for me. It's my first Ruger but I couldn't be happier. Good luck with it. I hope you enjoy yours like I enjoy mine.

I have a buddy who had an SR-9 he mentioned his trigger got gritty from too much dry firing. I can't say anything about that. Just what I heard. Take it for what it's worth.

The trigger is gritty if you dry fire it without the magazine in place, which as stated previously, is a no-no.
